Fargo North tops Mandan in ND state girls soccer consolation semifinals

FARGO – Time was winding down in the second golden-goal overtime on Friday at Sid Cichy Stadium and a shootout between Fargo North and Mandan seemed imminent.

Spartans junior Andie Sarafolean had other plans.

Sarafolean scored a golden goal with 5.2 seconds remaining in the second overtime period during North’s 1-0 win over Mandan in the consolation semifinals of the North Dakota girls soccer state tournament.

The ball was cleared off the line to Sarafolean following a corner kick attempt and the North defender put a shot on net that eluded the reach of Mandan goalkeeper Rachel Ford.

North (7-3-2) advances to the fifth-place game at 11 a.m. Saturday.
